Dancing American Indian Children

The Division of Epidemiology and Disease Prevention (DEDP) provides and supports applied public health and epidemiologic services to further the overall IHS mission. Through the provision of direct services and key partnerships, our collective work strives to improve overall awareness, understanding, and mitigation of priority health conditions negatively impacting American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) populations. Specific efforts center around primary prevention of vaccine-preventable diseases, surveillance and reporting on various health-related outcomes and risks, and enhancing Tribal public health and epidemiologic capacity directly supporting Tribal communities.

The DEDP is a component division within the IHS Headquarters’ Office of Public Health Support (OPHS).
